Kaahele and Friends to perform at The Cooperage


August 20, 2014

HONESDALE, PA — Kaahele and Friends will perform at The Cooperage, 1030 Main St., on Sunday, August 24 at 7 p.m.

Kaahele is the Hawaiian word for “journey” and the professional name of singer/songwriter Kelly Hyde. Kaahele was born and raised in Callicoon, NY. Her affinity for music became apparent at a young age with her pursuit of both guitar and trumpet. As Kaahele grew up, she began to travel widely, eventually making her way to Hawaii.

Kaahele’s deep respect for the importance of cultural traditions and the undisturbed landscape influences her music and shapes her work. “[My] songs have a common theme about the separation between the modern and the natural worlds,” said Kaahele. Combining her roots with her influential travels through Hawaii, Kaahele’s music takes on notes of upbeat folk and island reggae.

She will be joined on stage by several friends, including Stephen Faubel. The show is BYOB. Donations will be collected at the door. For more information, visit www.thecooperageproject.org or call 570/253-2020.
